With the current version of the tab thumbnail preview one cannot zoom the preview window. It would be a real benefit if the browser would allow the preview window to zoom in/out the thumbnail using the +/- or the mouse's scroll wheel. This will help in situations where you want to compare two words or numbers from different web-sites open in different tabs without actually switching over to tabs themselves. With the current thumbnail preview one can only identify the web-site. But if there is a zoom in feature we can take advantage of the "preview tab content" in more detail. Probably the behaviour might be something like this below:
1. Focus mouse on the tab to allow the browser show the thumbnail preview
2. Use the mouse's scroll wheel upwards or the '+' to zoom-in the tab thumbnail
3. If the thumbnail zoom in has reached a limited size then reset the preview size to the original thumbnail size (making the zoom feature cyclic). The opposite (zoom out) should happen when the mouse's scroll wheel is rolled downwards or the '-' is used.
